Transformers: The Last Knight Legion Mission to Cybertron Toys R Us Exclusive Combiner Infernocus with Quintessa (Glug, Gorge, Rupture, Skulk, Thrash)

Transformers: The Last Knight Toy Reviews

Infernocus is a repaint of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Abominus’s limbs with a new leader toy.

Glug

Previous Mold Use: The Last Knight Mission to Cybertron Legion Grimlock, The Last Knight Legion Grimlock, Discount Legends Grimlock, Age of Extinction Legion Grimlock, Beast Hunters Legion Cindersaur, Beast Hunters Abominus Box Set Rippersnapper, Beast Hunters Legion Rippersnapper

This toy sucks. It was awful as Rippersnapper and it’s awful as Grimlock. If they had given him some more orange highlights he would have looked better, but still sucked.

Gorge

Previous Mold Use: Beast Hunters Legion Rot Gut, Beast Hunters Legion Blight (Repaint), Beast Hunters Abominus Box Set Blight, Beast Hunters Legion Blight

Gorge has a few more paint apps than Glug, but needed more. Better than Glug, but that’s not saying much.

Rupture

Previous Mold Use: Discount Legends Strafe, Beast Hunters Legion Divebomb, Beast Hunters Abominus Box Set Windrazor, Beast Hunters Legion Windrazor

Rupture looks pretty decent. He looks less like a black blob of plastic than Gorge and Glug.

Skulk

Skulk is the new mold. Regrettably, they didn’t bother to give him an alternate mode. He is a robot and forms the main body of Infernocus. That’s it. It’s a lazy design choice by Hasbro. Having said that, he doesn’t look bad in robot mode at all. I rather like this one, his lack of an alternate mode not withstanding.

Thrash

Previous Mold Use: Beast Hunters Abominus Box Set Twinstrike, Beast Hunters Legion Twinstrike

Believe it or not, this is only the third use of this mold. It’s the best of the bunch, so of course they repainted the others. Again, a little more orange paint would have made all the difference.

Infernocus

When I found Infernocus and looked at him in the package, he looked pretty awesome. I knew that he would cease to look that awesome when I took him out of the box. He can barely stand on his poorly designed legs, but otherwise looks pretty cool.

Quintessa

Quintessa is the real villain of the movie and this is the only toy we get? What the fuck Hasbro.

Overall: If you get Infernocus, do yourself a favor. Leave him in the box on a shelf to look cool. That is not something I recommend with many Transformers, but you’ll hate him when you open him.

Thanks for reading!
